After another hectic, challenging, and hopefully productive school year, summer break has arrived! Not sure how to keep it from slipping through your fingers? We can help.

As much as students believe their teachers are probably busy doing their lesson plans for the following September as soon as the final bell rings, educators know that┬ásummer break is the perfect chance to focus on yourself. Ensure sure you’re making the most of your summer vacation by adding some of these activities to your to-do list.

1. Kick Up Your Workout Routine

Make sure to set aside a few days a week to join a yoga class, go for a run, or take a walk with a buddy. You can even do some push-ups and crunches while catching up on your favorite Netflix show. Plus, you’ll have the perfect excuse to go shopping for a new wardrobe before class is back in session!
